From the Authors

Welcome to iris folding - the easy folding technique with fantastic results. We show you how to impress your family and friends by making attractive greeting cards out of used envelopes and have lots of fun at the same time!

This book is made up of the books Iris Folding Compendium, Iris Folding Compendium Part 2 and Iris Folding Compendium Part 3.

The greeting cards are made with colorful strips of iris folding paper, origami paper, holographic paper and English and Italian luxury paper, as well as the insides of used envelopes. Look at the post you receive each day and the colorful print on the insides of the envelopes and start collecting! If you combine the various shades and materials, you can create a new piece of art each time. Cover the hole in the center of the card with the strips of colored paper by following the numbered sections of the pattern. Easy!

We have collected over 460 different colors and designs. See how many you can collect.

Good Luck!
